CNN's Piers Morgan says he's getting sick and tired of having the same “ridiculous debate” on gun violence every single time there is a mass shooting,
He made that abundantly clear last night.
Piers absolutely unloaded on conservative radio host Ben Ferguson and gun rights activist John Lott during a heated argument over gun control:
Ferguson, following the Navy Yard shooting, said this was a gun-free zone, so gun control was “a failure in this base with all the best security in the world.”
Morgan countered that the bigger failure is the “failure to do anything” by the elected officials in the U.S. in the wake of countless tragic shootings.
After a remark that there is no debate over mental health, Morgan cried, “You guys just never accept that the gun itself can never be part of the problem!”
Lott argued that gun-free zones are “magnets” for tragedies like this to occur, and fought with Morgan over the accuracy of gun massacre statistics.
Morgan also scoffed at the “gun-free zone” comment, noting that security measures the NRA wanted after Sandy Hook were present at the base.
“And it made absolutely no difference!” Piers claimed.
Ferguson replied that if someone is in the Navy is trusted with classified information, “why the hell wouldn’t we trust you to bring your weapon to work with you?”
Morgan scolded the panel for being so intransigent in their views about guns. He shouted, “Think about your position! Think about how it helps save American lives!"
"Because it doesn’t! More guns is not the answer!”
Gun control: Time for stricter regulations?
